Im not kidding, theres really no substitute for getting a fresh perspective on things, like taking a break from everything. In the first place you become more relaxed, and in the second place a steaming cup of coffee (or tea) is always welcome.
Now that youre sitting down comfortably and are suitably relaxed, close your eyes and envision the room that you want to redecorate. Even if you are doing more than one room, its always a good idea to start with one room first working your way logically through to the next one and then the next one. Also, before you start on your journey through the land of interior design ideas, keep a notebook and pencil at hand so that you can jot down any inspirational ideas you have before you forget them.
So just sit back and picture the room in your mind. Try and see it as you would like it to look. And if thats too hard, then try firstly to replace separate bits and pieces. This is always a good way to work. If youve still got a mental drought on interior design ideas, then try to leaf through some interior design catalogs beforehand so that you have at least a working idea of what you can do to change the room.
The interior design catalogs need not be anything more impressive than your local department store catalog, turned to the home furnishing section. Then again, these days you also get specialist stores which cater solely to the art of redecorating your home. If you have the time a quick run down to one of these might also help to end the dearth on interior design ideas, and can possibly help to get you kick started.
These stores will have staged sets of many designs, giving you a good idea of what your room can look like. If youre going to one of these places though go prepared to shell out some cash as no matter how tight a hand you keep on your pocket youll always find something you want to buy. This isnt necessarily a bad thing but unless you watch out you could end up buying out the store. And without a proper idea of what you want the room to look like, this can prove to be disastrous.
Not to worry though, if you just keep your goal in mind you can come back and get a start on redecorating your rooms the way you want. And now that youve managed to at least get some interior design ideas on what your rooms should look like, your whole redecorating project should be that much easier and that much fun.
